Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your sky router?

Do you know how to check / confirm your wi-fi/wireless password ***** key?

Do you have a laptop/wireless computer that is currently able to connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, or Mac?

Besides the kindle fire, do you also have a windows or mac computer?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

So you use the network key, but it does not work. Do you have an extra Ethernet/network cable that you can connect from the laptop to the router temporarily, if it's not connected yet?
Can I connect remotely to your computer, so I can check on the router's setting directly through your computer, so that it would work with the new kindle fire?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
